elcome to First Grade at South School!

First grade is such a special and important time for your child and I am so excited to be a part of it! My name is Stephanie Cournoyer. Our classroom, as a learning environment, is safe, friendly, respectful and fun! It is also a community that encourages a love of learning! I look forward to a great school year with you and all your precious little ones.

We are very fortunate to have Meggin Treanor as our Developmental Instructional Assistant to support our classroom in the morning. 

On this web page, you will find general information, ways to reach me, our daily schedule, our homework policy and some useful websites.


Other Information

Supplies for your child:

  • A 2-pocket folder to bring notes and notices back and forth to school.
  • 3-pack of large glue sticks.
  • Please have pencils (and erasers) and crayons at home for homework.  We will provide pencils, crayons, and scissors for the classroom.
  • A lunchbox and backpack are also helpful items.  When choosing a backpack, please consider one that is large enough for a folder, a lunchbox, and possibly snow gear but one that your little one can easily handle.

Absences: Please report all student absences to the main office via the absentee line at 432-6956.

Dismissals: If there is any change to your child's regular dismissal routine, please send in a dismissal note with your child or call the main office directly. Please note that I do not always get to check my email throughout the day so if you send a dismissal email to me, please also include the main office on the email to ensure it is received. Please be sure to include the date, your child's first and last name, my name, and your signature on all notes.  Forms for a regular weekly dismissal can be found in the main office .

Recess: Please dress the children appropriately for the weather as we will be outside as often as possible, weather permitting. Please label backpacks, lunchboxes, snowpants... with your child's name in the event they are misplaced.
